Little has changed overnight. His numbers are about the same. They are reducing blood pressure meds and he is handling it well, so far. There is not a lot to report and I know you are trying to go to church, so thank you for checking one more time.

Worship our Lord Jesus, and please pray for Bj.

We are in constant prayer for all of you. I can only imagine how tough this is on all of you right now. Everyone has fought so hard, especially BJ. We will pray for a big improvement today in BJ's status, no new infections and for your continued strength. We love you all and are continually thinking of you.

These Lyrics I pray will speak to you this morning. As we go to worship we pray you sense the thousands of prayers that will be lifted up to the Throne for BJ's healing and for your continued strength and well being......

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up… To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up… To more than I can be.

There is no life – no life without its hunger;
Each restless heart beats so imperfectly;
But when you come and I am filled with wonder,
Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up… To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up… To more than I can be.

Continuing to pray for healing and peace in the storm. the Lord brought Romans 5:1-2 to mind this morning. "...justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ...", "...we exult in hope of the glory of God"

I had to check one last time before we go to church! Psalms 5:1-3 says "Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my sighing. Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God for to you I pray. In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation." That is what we will be doing all morning long, laying our requests before God to please heal BJ. Brooke, Ashley D. and myself are all wearing our shirts this morning to church to rally more prayer warriors! We love you guys. Don't give up.

I was awakened so many times in the night and for one reason I know and that was to pray. It is a constant crying out to the Lord for all of you.
I would love to be there to envelope you in my arms. You are all very special and loved so much.Your lives have touched the world and they love you also. I just have the priviledge of knowing you.

Won't stop praying.

God, as we gather in different places this morning for corporate worship, continuing to lift BJ before YOUR throne, we ask for YOUR DEVINE WILL in healing.

We know that you hear us, we know that YOU have the perfect answer. YOUR answer and YOUR desire is what we all seek.

God, I ask a special hedge of protection around BJ right now, Deanna, Brent, Lauren and Whitney.

They are have been strong and so faithful, yet they are so weary and must feel weak. Father, bind satan from their midst. YOU have all the GLORY and POWER, they have been faithful to remind us all of that through this journey. Grant them the mercy of YOUR comfort, YOUR peace and YOUR direction.

Satan you have no authority here! Our GOD is who we cry out to in PRAISE "regardless" of the day's events, you cannot defeat all of the brothers and sisters in CHRIST who are praying for this family. They, we, are a part of the FAMILY OF GOD. There is no defeat, our GOD is GLORIFIED!!

Father, cradle them through this day, moment by moment. Give them quiet.

Thank YOU again Father for all of the medical staff, may they continue to be focused, gentle and sensitive to all of BJ's needs and those of the family.


Many a "pink" prayer will be going up in churches all over the country this morning.

Love you more than words can ever say.

Our hearts,

Stay strong, family.
You WILL get through this,
and the Lord will receive the glory.
BJ is His precious boy.
The battle belongs to the Lord.
Jesus has His arms wrapped around all of you, right now, at this very moment.

My 9-yr-old daughter posted at 8:37 this morning. Your family has touched ours in so many ways. Though we haven't met you, you are a part of our family and constantly in our thoughts and prayers.
Last night in our worship service, we sang "It Is Well with my Soul" and BJ and your family came to mind immediately. It's comforting to know that no matter the circumstances, BJ knows that peace and you all do as well. Though it hurts to see a loved one go through circumstances such as this, Jesus loves you and is with you all and I praise Him because you know that! Your family has been an awesome witness for HIm!

I continue to pray for BJ's healing and for you all and I will not stop! Thank you for the updates and allowing us to bring you before the Father. My prayer life has been renewed!

Didn't have a chance to check before church, but just to let you know that I put in a prayer request for BJ at our church this morning, so during service our pastor included BJ in our prayers. Know that many hundreds more lifted BJ up to our Lord and Savior this morning for healing!

Dear Jesus
I lift BJ up to you today. I pray that you show the world today that miracles still happen by healing this young man. Lord, I pray that you put your loving arms around his family and friends and give them the strength to go on. Lord, I also pray that you will give all understanding , now or later, of why this is happening. This tradegy has already been a testimony to so many, I pray that today and in the future the testimony will go on. I love you Lord for your might love and power. In Jesus name I pray. Amen!!

To the family:
I have just recently learned of BJ and his illness. BJ's story has been such a testimony to me. I want to thank you for giving BJ to God to do God's work, because if it were not for that we would not have his testimony. Keep your head up and eyes on Jesus. Your are in mine and many others prayers!
